Dungeons and Draughr: a Skyrim survival challenge

Jar-Neelius
Compared with past TES games, character creation in Skyrim is a rather quick process. The only major choice to make is your race; classes no longer exist as a mechanical choice, and birthsigns are nowhere to be seen. After some playing around with a bit, I settled on a fairly slender, snake-like Argonian rogue. Meet Jar-Neelius:

Except for a couple of additional dialogue boxes explaining how the survival mod works, the intro segment played exactly the same as Vanilla. I sided with the Stormcloak NPC for the first dungeon, and focused on stealth skills. Although the class system is gone, Jar-Neelius plays very much like a rogue from the past games, and the Thief Stone helped seal the deal.
